SunTrust Park Named Ballpark of the Year
Ballpark Digest has named SunTrust Park, home to the Atlanta Braves, its 2017 Ballpark of the Year:
In the end, it really wasn’t a hard decision, despite the fact that four very good new professional ballparks opened this season. When SunTrust Park debuted in April, it was hailed as a facility that advanced the state of the art in sports architecture and praised as a model for MLB teams as they move forward on new-ballpark plans or renovations to existing facilities. After several months of use, those predictions are proving to be true. SunTrust Park is a hit with fans, and as development surrounding the ballpark continues, it should prove to be an economic engine for Cobb County on a year-round basis.
